A few reasons why you and your club should go to DCON:

→ It will be held in at the Seattle Sheraton Hotel and the Washington State Convention Center. → There will be a show performance by Joseph Vincent. → The opportunity to run for a district office. → The wide options of different forums this year, including dancing. → If you want to stay a day later, the hotel will offer the same price in room. This gives your club an opportunity to explore Seattle! BUT, don’t forget about these deadlines: → Paper work for higher offices due January 31st, 2014. → Registration due February 14 th, 2014. This includes full payment.* → Check in time on the 4 th of April is at Noon. *Talk to your Kiwanis club and ask them about possible joint fundraisers or sponsorships.


“DCON is pretty much just like this big party. I went to DCON last year and had so much fun! It was really cool to get to know other members around the District. I really did make some lifelasting friendships here. Without a doubt, I’m going this year.” Says Richard, member of RAl Key Club

Service Projects Start this New Year off right, create a variety of more service projects! Use your Key Club Handbook, as well as other ideas, to come up with the perfect projects. Here are some ideas: → Get together with your Kiwanis Club. Make some valuable connections with your sponsoring Kiwanis Club by coming to the Kiwanis DCM on Saturday January 11 at ten. Come to the Center located at 106 NW 8th Ave, Kelso. → Hold competitions for your school! From hairy leg competitions to ugliest teacher contest, there is a whole range of projects that will not only help your club raise money but also enjoy themselves! → Contact myself or go online to for more information on these ideas!
